Sue asks:
I have had long hair since I was a young girl, I am approaching 40 and think that I need a new look. I have a long face and some people have told me I would suit my hair shorter. Are there any styles that are good for long face shapes that are current and won’t be too dramatic. I also have brown hair and I would like to be a little more adventurous, I am pale with brown eyes. Can you recommend anything that would suit me.

Hi, i can completely understand how time can get the better of you and hairstyles become hard to change as instinctively humans don’t like too much change, that being said you obviously understand the importance of a revamp. Because you have long hair and always have the option to cut shorter, for you first attempt at restyling it i would keep it simple but different, this way when you keep coming back to the salon we can keep changing it. The ideal shape for a ladies hair is oval, this is the shape we will try and achieve when cutting your hair, so because your face shape is longer you need to consentrade on round shapes to give width some great options would be to: ...More >

• classic round layering - the simplest way to give body and width but very effective
• fringe - a heavy straight fringe is not only cool and fresh for A/W14 it will give an amazing amount of width and make your restyle come to life
• long bob - cutting the length up to maybe a long bob will be perfect for you, this is huge in London at the moment because you can still wear it up, curl it and also have it straight, versatility is MASSIVE at the moment.
• short crop - the extreme way to create a new look and something perfect for you, maybe it would be good to build up to this as you will keep reinventing yourself but still if your look to make an impact to friends and family, this will do it!

now for colour,

as you have paler skin i would work with warm tones like your, copper, reds and golds which is perfect for A/W14 coming up. maybe an allover application of a burnt copper will bring out your eye colour make your hair super shiny, the other alternative is some soft blonde highlights or ombre nothing light maybe golden blonde finely woven highlights so it looks like the sun as hit it, this is also pick up your skin tone and get you glowing again.





Helen asks:
I am reconsidering my colour, I have very pale skin in winter and choose not to wear lots of fake tan to keep my complexion looking warmer. I just think my hair colour is to harsh against my skin tone and I am not sure what to do. I like to keep to the seasons fashions and wondered if you have any advice. My hair is long and thick.

Thanks Helen.

Hi Helen

Great to hear from you. In many instances dramatic change is not required, it sounds like you just need a delicate transition into this new season. Your hair should always be one of your key style statements, after all it is one of the very first things that people notice about you. Hair colour for this season doesn’t need to make a big statement, the beauty of Autumn Winter 14 hair colour is to ensure it is polished and sophisticated and we achieve this by blending, smudging and merging varying tones. This will work well for you as your stylist should be able to add a variety of tones that will compliment your cooler skin tones. Our clients that are interested in fashion are moving towards diffused pastel shades, angelic mauve pinks and light pastel hues. Natural, off duty long hair is still huge and guaranteeing front page headlines for some of the worlds most beautiful women including Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively and Jessica Bile....the list goes on! There is so much inspiration for hairdressers with the Ombre look. Infact these looks would be an absolute must, the beautiful hues involved will add that essential movement and create texture making long hair even more powerful. The key to beautiful ombre colouring is to keep softer, cooler blends of 3 to 4 tones that make colour travel subtly through the hair.







Amanda Davies asks:
Hi, I naturally have dark brown hair and earlier this year I had the bottom half highlighted blonde (for the ombre effect). I’ve now decided I want all of my hair highlighted in the same colour as the ombre section, is this a possible thing?

There are so many clients that now have the Ombre colour that are now looking for a bit of change, your in luck as you have a couple of options. 1. You could even out your colour to go generally lighter by colouring with conventional highlights and Glaze over the hair to even out the tone. 2. You can also scatter highlights through the top sections to even out slightly but to keep a slight ombre/Balayage effect. At this time of year clients are all looking to richen up their ombre to incorporate more Carmel toffee hues ready for the cold winter evenings.
